August 29th 2017: Alison free online course - Diploma in Children's Studies
Children from birth to the age of 18 are now considered academically to represent a distinct sociological and cultural class. This means that children are studied as complete individuals in their own right, separate and distinct from adults.
Alison's free online course is multidisciplinary in nature, covering developmental, psychological, familial and sociological aspects of children's studies. It begins by reviewing the psychological development of children and how they learn, then looks at the role of the family and the place of the child within modern family structures.
Alison’s Diploma in Children’s Studies will be of great interest to all professionals who work with children or who are responsible for their well-being, and to learners who would like a career working with children in the health, social or caring professions.
Eric Corbett, Head of Content at Alison said, “The Diploma in Children’s Studies is a useful resource for any professional working with children and will also be of interest to parents who want to relate, support, encourage and understand their children better.”
